In today's competitive business environment, antitrust and unfair competition claims arise frequently. Cox, Castle & Nicholson represents entities and individuals in claims involving unfair trade practices, false advertising, price fixing or discrimination, the protection of intellectual property, including trade secret misappropriation, and other alleged antitrust and unfair competition claims. Our attorneys have successfully defended clients sued under California Business and Professions Code sections 17200 and 17500, the Lanham Act, the Trade Secrets Misappropriation Act, and other the state and federal laws governing these claims, and have routinely stopped our clients' competitors from unfairly competing with our clients' businesses.
Because unfair competition can have immediate and long-term impacts on clients, our experienced litigators have obtained injunctive relief and other provisional remedies at the outset of a lawsuit to prevent the anticompetitve activity from destroying our clients' businesses. We have similarly secured verdicts and settlements for restitution, disgorgement, and punitive damages. Likewise, whether through trial or settlement, we have successfully defended our clients from unfounded unfair competition claims.
